[1893. 



CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1893. 

MERCURY IS THE GOVERNING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General. — Is more dry and cold 
than warm, and seldom fruitful. 

Spring. — The end of March will be warm, April, 
until the 25, dry, afterwards cold. May will have 
some cold days in the commencement, so that the 
fruit will be in danger. 

Summer. — Will have a good deal of rain, by which 
the earth will, however, not be properly refreshed. 
The hay and grain can be brought in pretty well, 
though it will be best not to delay with it. 

Autumn. — In the commencement there will be a 
great deal of rain, and there will be early frost ; but 
when the half of October is past, there will be dry 
weather until the commencement of advent. 

Winter. — After a pleasant autumn, winter will fall 
in suddenly in the commencement of December ; it 
will be cold and snow until February, which will 
appear rather mild ; but from the middle on to the 
4th of March it will be cold ; and from thence on to 
the termination, storms and tempests will take 
place. ■> 

Cultivation of Spring Grain. — Will succeed pretty 
well. It is a favorite year for barley. Oats, peas, 
and other leguminous plants must be sown when the 
ground is neither too dry nor too wet and damp. 
Hemp and flax will be good, but the hemp will 
remain short. 

Cultivation of Winter Grain. — 1£ various. If 
the summer of the preceding year was very warm, 



wheat and rye will in the present year yield largely 
in straw, but little in the grain ; but if the preceding 
year was humid, they will yield well in the grain. 
Rye and wheat will be endangered in the blossom- 
ing. 

August Seeding. — The early and the late will be 
the best ; the middle one will be consumed by the 
flies. The early sown grain can be pastured by the 
sheep in the spring, but the late sown must not. 

Fruit. — In some places it will grow abundantly, 
in some places tolerably, and in others there will be 
none at all. 

Hops. — Will not be abundant nor strong. 

Grape Culture seldom succeeds ; probably in five 
or six years once, is always rough, and if it ever 
promises fairly in the spring, it seldom produces any- 
thing good ; but two unproductive years will follow 
yet, viz., that of the Moon and Saturn. 

Tempests and Thundergusts. — The east wind will 
be the most prevalent, sometimes the west, but sel- 
dom the north wind ; during the summer there will 
be but few thundergusts. 

Fishes. — There will be but few fish in the streams 
during the summer ; in autumn they will increase. 

Diseases. — Can be cured only slowly in this year, 
and they prevail mostly in the spring and latter part 
of autumn. Epidemic diseases generally prevail 
among the cattle this year.

Life and Times of Eld. 



Brethren' 's Family Almanac 

George Wolfe. 




EARS ago I commenced gathering 
material for the life and times of 
Elder George Wolfe, of Liberty, 
Adams Co., 111., but various circumstances 
prevented me from placing it in readable 
shape. Lately I have been urged to give 
to the public the information I had col- 
lected, in order that it might be preserved 
to future generations. 

When a boy it was my good fortune to 
spend a few years on the farm, adjoin- 
ing the Wolfe farm, where Eld. George 
Wolfe at that time lived with his son 
David. I also worked for David Wolfe, 
and boarded in the family. I was thus per- 
mitted to be with Eld. Wolfe a good deal, 
and learned as much concerning him as it is 
common for boys to know under ordinary 
circumstances. Some years later I was 
thrown into the society of Eld. Isham Gib- 
son, then of Macoupin County, this State, 
who related to me much concerning the ca- 
reer of Eld. Wolfe, the two having spent 
years together, as co-laborers among the 
Brethren, once known as the " Far Western 
Brethren." Numerous documents have also 
been placed in my hands, and from these, 
with what I personally know, together with 
information gathered from various other 
sources, I have prepared this brief biograph- 
ical sketch. 

Eld. George Wolfe was born in Lancaster 
County, Pa., April 25, 1780. His parents 
were both members of the Brethren church, 
and of German descent. His father, whose 
name was also George, was an elder in the 
church at the time his son George was born. 
He had one other son, whose name was 
Jacob. When the subject of our sketch was 
about seven years old, his parents moved 
across the Alleghany Mountains, to Fayette 
County, Pa., settling near the Monongahela 
River, about ten miles from Uniontown, the 
County-seat. This was in the year 1787. 
This Eld. Wolfe, Sen., is said to have been 



the first ordained elder to have settled west 
of the mountains. 

The family continued to reside in Fayette 
County for thirteen years, and engaged 
largely in farming. The two boys, George 
and Jacob, assisted their father in his 
agricultural labors. George enjoyed few 
educational privileges, and therefore never 
obtained anything more than a very ordi- 
nary English education. It would seem 
that they had some knowledge of boat- 
building, for, during their stay in Fayette 
County, the boys also assisted their father 
in building flat-boats for use on the Ohio 
River. This was before the age of steam- 
boats. 

In the year 1800, when George was twen- 
ty years old, Eld. Wolfe loaded his sub- 
stance on a flat-boat, and,* with his family, 
started down the Ohio River. The journey 
was a long and laborious one, beset with 
many dangers, for the western country was 
still troubled by bands of savage Indians, 
and not a few of them had their abode near 
the banks of the river. We next hear of 
him landing in Muhlenburgh County, Ken- 
tucky, near the middle of the western part 
of the State. At this time the country was 
still new and exposed to depredations from 
the Indians. There were other members of 
the church in Kentucky at that time, but 
how many, we have at this date no means 
of knowing. They emigrated from North 
Carolina in an early day. Eld. Casper 
Rolland seems to have been the first minis- 
ter to settle in the State, and Eld. John 
Hendricks, of North Carolina, the next. 
There were also members in the south- 
eastern part of Missouri, and probably a few 
in the south-western part of Illinois. They 
claimed their descent from the Brethren in 
North Carolina. 

It was in the year 1800 that Eld. George 
Wolfe landed in Kentucky with his family. 
Three years after this, — March 3 1803, — his 
son George, the subject of this sketch, was 
married to Anna Hunsicker, who was to him 
a noble Christian companion. It is related

that there were but few single women in the 
West in those days, and that young George, 
then twenty-three years old, had little 
chance of making another choice, as Anna 
was the only young, unmarried lady in the 
community. A young lawyer claimed the 
hand of the lady, and threatened to severely 
punish the young farmer for winning the 
heart of his expected bride. George rea- 
soned with him, telling him the lady had 
her choice, and made the selection of her 
own free will; that the " knot was tied," and 
there was no use in making trouble over it. 
Reason would not satisfy the young attor- 
ney, and, in regular Western parlance, he 
told Wolfe that he could prepare himself 
for a good " thrashing." 

Seeing that the lawyer could not be satis- 
fied with reason and good common sense, 
George, — who was a man of large bodily 
proportions, great strength, and inured to 
the hardships of a frontier life, — told him 
plainly that he had married the woman in 
good faith, and that if he thought a little, 
spindling lawyer could handle a strong, ro- 
bust farmer like himself, he was at liberty 
to have his satisfaction. 

This was characteristic of the man all 
through life. He was as gentle and peacea- 
ble as a lamb, but he turned aside for noth- 
ing. The lawyer never disturbed George any 
more. 

Five years later, in 1808, young George 
and his brother Jacob emigrated to Illinois, 



and settled in Union County, about forty 
miles north of the mouth of the Ohio River. 
This Jacob Wolfe afterwards became the 
father of the Eld. George Wolfe, of Cali- 
fornia. Illinois, at this time, was included 
in what was known as " Indiana Territory," 
and was in the wilds of the Far West, and 
an unsettled wilderness. Just across the 
Mississippi River, in Cape Girardeau Coun- 
ty, Missouri, there were a few members, but 
there seem to have been none in the sec- 
tion of country where the two Wolfe broth- 
ers had settled. The white settlements 
were few and far between. The entire 
white population of the whole district, now 
included in the State of Illinois, could not 
have exceeded 5,000. 

The next year, 1809, the Eld. Geo. Wolfe, 
Sen., whose home was still in Kentucky, 
traveled through South-western Missouri 
and Southern Illinois on a preaching tour, 
and on his way home took sick at the old 
town of Kaskaskia, about fifty miles north- 
west of where his two sons were living, and 
died and was buried at that place. His 
death was probably the first among the 
members in the State. The first white set- 
tlement made in the State was near this old 
town in 1682, and it is remarkable that the 
first brother to die in the State should be an 
elder, and his resting place near the oldest 
town in the State. 

The settlement in Union County was oc- 
casionally visited by Eld. John Hendricks, 
of Kentucky, who also preached for the 
members living in Missouri. He frequently 
met George Wolfe, and found him to be a 
man well read in the Scriptures and a keen 
logical disputant. 

In the year 181 1 occurred the remarkable 
earthquake in the Mississippi Valley, which 
lasted six months. The convulsions of the 
earth were so great as to create lakes and 
islands. Deep chasms were formed in the 
earth, from which vast volumes of water, 
sand, and even coal, were thrown to the 
height of nearly one hundred feet. It was 
a year of intense excitement and great re-

ligious awakening in the West. The Meth- 
odists held a revival in the Wolfe neighbor- 
hood, and George being of a religious turn 
of mind, united with them, there being ten 
others who professed conversion at the 
same time. Bro. Wolfe was appointed their 
class-leader. He had a good knowledge of 
the Brethren and their doctrine, but up to 
this time had made no profession. 

He had taken his conversion and appoint- 
ment as class-leader quite seriously, and the 
first time the class met, he took his place as 
their leader, and addressed the members of 
his class about as follows: "Brethren and 
sisters, we are now organized into a class. 
I have pondered and prayed over this mat- 
ter, and have come to the conclusion that if 
John Wesley is the Savior, we are all right, 
but if Jesus Christ is the Savior then we are 
all wrong!' 

This speech from the bold young class- 
leader sent a thrill of horror through the 
hearts of the members of the newly-formed 
class. They said, " Christ is our Savior," 
and in amazement they asked, " But what 
shall we do?" Bro. Wolfe said, "Let lis 
send to Kentucky for a Dunkard preacher 
to come and baptize us." He remembered 
the instructions of Peter to the Pentecosti- 
ans, to " repent and be baptized every one 
of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the 
remission of sins." Acts 2: 38. A young 
man, by the name of Hunsicker, Wolfe's 
brother-in-law, was immediately started to 



Kentucky, a distance of about 150 miles. 
On the road he met Eld. John Hendricks, 
who was on a visit of love to his friends in 
Union County. His arrival was hailed with 
joy, for the harvest was fully ripe. He held 
meetings and baptized the entire class in 
Clear Creek, there being about fourteen in 
all, including the two Wolfe brothers and 
their wives. Bro. George was the first one 
to enter the water. He was probably the 
first person ever baptized by the Brethren in 
the State. This was in the year 1812, at 
which time George was thirty-two years old. 

The same year the little band was called 
together to be organized and elect the nec- 
essary officers, and a proposition was made 
to that effect. Bro. Wolfe opposed the 
election, saying, " I have looked over the 
brethren carefully and come to the con- 
clusion that there is no one of us quali- 
fied for the ministry." Eld. Hendricks re- 
plied, "May be the Lord has a choice." 
Not till then had the thought occurred to 
Bro. Wolfe that he might be the man, and 
he was so affected that he wanted to leave 
before the election was held. But a few 
words from Eld. Hendricks, concerning 
Jonah's experience, quieted him and the 
election proceeded, resulting in' selecting 
George for the ministry and his brother Ja- 
cob and another brother for the deacon's of- 
fice. Bro. George entered earnestly upon 
the active duties of the ministry, being the 
only minister at that time in either Illinois 
or Missouri. 

The next year, 181 3, Bro. Wolfe was or- 
dained to the eldership by Eld. John Hoch- 
stettler and Hahn, of Kentucky. This was 
the first ordination among the Brethren in 
Illinois. Some time after this brethren 
Hochstettler and Hahn got to preaching 
strange doctrine and were expelled from the 
church. In the spring of the same year that 
Eld. Wolfe was ordained, Eld. John Hen- 
dricks, who had baptized Bro. Wolfe and 
his class, died, just as he was getting ready 
to move to Cape Girardeau County Mo. 
This was, indeed, a great loss to the Breth- j

ren, as he was a good man and had the con- 
fidence of the people. His family moved to 
that County, and Oct. 17, 1818, his son, 
James Hendricks, was ordained to the elder- 
ship by Eld. George Wolfe. This was the 
first ordination to have taken place in Mis- 
souri. It was the same year when Illinois 
.became a State. Missouri did not enter the 
sisterhood of States till three years later. 

Under the able preaching of Eld. Wolfe 
the churches in Illinois and Missouri pros- 
pered greatly. He and Bro. James Hen- 
dricks, of Missouri, were fast friends and 
were much together in their traveling, 
preaching and church work. They had but 
I little communication with the churches in 
the East, and, as might be expected, fell in- 
to some practices not altogether in harmony 
with the order of the general Brotherhood 
at that time. From the commencement 
they practiced feet-washing by' the single 
mode, having, in all probability, seen it 
practiced that way in some of the churches 
in Pennsylvania before the close of the 
eighteenth century. It is remarkable that 
this mode was carried by these brethren in- 
to the great wilderness, so to speak, and re- 
tained by them in their practice for more 
than a half century before much was heard 
of it, and that finally it came rapidly to the 
front and is now the general practice in the 
Brotherhood at large. But amid all their 
struggles these Brethren in the Far West 



retained a strong feeling for the churches in 
the East, and labored for that union of prac- 
tice and fellowship afterwards so happily 
consummated. The first love-feast ever 
held in Missouri was about the year 1810, or 
about two years before Eld. George Wolfe 
united with the church. It was held under 
the direction of Eld. John Hendricks. 

Eld. Wolfe continued his labors in Union 
County for about nineteen years, traveling 
and preaching much, and became widely 
known. Many remarkable things are relat- 
ed of him, only one of which we have space 
to mention in this brief sketch. He held a 
public debate with a Roman Catholic priest 
in the town of Kaskaskia. It was here that 
his father was buried, as mentioned before. 
The place had been a Catholic stronghold 
for more than a hundred years. The debate 
created a wonderful excitement. It was at- 
tended by the Governor of the State, who 
afterwards said of Eld. Wolfe, " He is the 
profoundest man, for an illiterate man, I ev- 
er heard." So crushing were Bro. Wolfe's 
arguments against Catholicism, so powerful 
were his appeals for primitive Christianity, 
so complete was his victory over his oppo- 
nent, and so thoroughly did he arouse the 
Catholic hatred that his life was greatly in 
jeopardy. At that time a company of sol- 
diers was stationed at Kaskaskia and the 
Governor, unknown to Bro. Wolfe, had de- 
tailed a number of the soldiers to protect 
him in his homeward journey. When he 
mounted his horse to leave the place, he 
was greatly surprised to find himself sur- 
rounded by a band of cavalry, with drawn 
swords, whose officer explained to Eld. 
Wolfe that he had orders to accompany and 
protect him on his journey. After guarding 
him to a safe distance from the town, the 
soldiers returned. This is, however, only 
one of the many thrilling incidents of this 
remarkable man's experience as a pioneer 
preacher. 

In August, 183 1, Eld. George Wolfe emi- 
grated, with a number of his members, to 
Adams County, Illinois, and settled near the

present town of Liberty. A love-feast was 
held in September of the same year, being 
the first feast held by the Brethren in that 
County. In a short time at least half of the 
members of Union County had settled in 
Adams County, 111. The remainder finally 
dwindled away and the church went down 
altogether. After settling in Adams Coun- 
ty he traveled very extensively, mostly on 
horseback. He is known to have visited 
the churches in Morgan, Sangamon, and 
Macoupin Counties every year for over thir- 
ty years. In 1858, the ferryman at Naples, 
111., speaking of Eld. Wolfe, said, "I have 
ferried that man over the river nearly every 
year for twenty-five years." Those were 
grand days when this aged preacher visited 
these churches and expounded the Word to 
the people in a manner that commanded 
universal respect. 

I first met him in the fall of 1861. He 
was then quite old and had seen his best 
days. A few years before his wife had 
passed into the other world. In appearance 
he was almost a giant, being nearly six feet 
and a half tall, and weighing about 275 
pounds. He was a man as finely built as 
any I ever met. He had a very large head, 
arched eyebrows, a high, broad forehead, 
and wore a long white beard. A powerful 
and erect form contributed to his command- 
ing appearance. In manners he was as gen- 
tle as a child, and yet as bold as a lion. He 
was a man who knew no fear. Though a 



man of very limited education, he was a 
great reader, and possessed a wonderful 
stock of information, which was always at 
his command. As a profound reasoner his 
resources seemed almost unlimited. Col. 
Richardson, of Quincy, one time said that 
he regarded Eld. Wolfe as one of the pro- 
foundest thinkers the State of Illinois ever 
had. 

Speaking of him, Eld. D. B. Gibson says: 
" His manner of preaching, like his pres- 
ence, was commanding, yet as gentle as a 
child. His language was simple, easily un- 
derstood by a child, and yet a philosopher 
would listen to it spell-bound. I have oft- 
en heard him preach two hours but never 
knew any one to leave the congregation be- 
cause he was not interested. In some re- 
spects he was the grandest preacher I ever 
heard. His great theme was the love of 
God. I never saw the man who sat under 
his artless eloquence but what rose up with 
the feeling that ' I will be a better man.' 
He seemed so uniform in personage and de- 
portment that no one who once saw him ev- 
er forgot him. His coming was looked for 
by old and young, and from all he received 
the most cordial and affectionate greeting. 
He was the most highly-revered man I ever 
saw. No man ever swore in his presence. 
He impressed with awe his every beholder. 

"In 1864, near the close of his life and 
the last time I ever heard him, — it was at 
the District Meeting of Southern Illinois, — 
Bro. Javan Gibson and myself helped him 
to the stand and to his feet. He said: ' Why 
do I wear the Brethren's garb? I answer: 
When in 1812 I came to the church — the 
church did not come to me — I weighed well 
her doctrine, her rules and her order. I 
joined her communion because I loved her. 
I became one of her number. I turned 
away from the world; in fact, I withdrew 
from it. I reasoned, that I do not love the 
world but I do love the church. I will not 
be like the world which I hate, but like the 
church that I love.' He thus spoke, while 
his limbs trembled with age, his voice be-

came husky with emotion, and his eyes 
filled with tears." 

In one of his last sermons he said: " I 
have preached the Gospel for over fifty 
years. I labored much when Illinois was a 
vvilderness. My work is now nearly done. 
I have, like Paul, finished my course, and if, 
when eternity shall dawn, and as I gaze with 
enraptured vision on the mighty hosts of 
the redeemed, if, in that mighty throng, one 
soul shall be numbered with the blest, be- 
cause I worked, prayed and preached, I 
shall be fully repaid for all my labors here." 

Nov. 16, 1865, in the 86th year of his age, 
he quietly closed his labors on earth and 
was buried near Liberty, Adams Co., 111. 
He was the father of eight children, — six 
sons and two daughters, — only one of whom 
is now living, viz., Bro. John Wolfe, who 
lives near Liberty, and is, perhaps, in his 
eighty-second year. 

In closing this brief sketch I regret that 
space does not permit me to narrate more 
of Eld. Wolfe's career, for, in looking over 
the pile of manuscript and information I 
have incidentally collected, I feel that not 
the half of his history has yet been told. 
With pleasure I have prepared the forego- 
ing, feeling that I have been made all the 
better by studying the life of one of the no- 
blest men that it has ever been my good 
fortune to meet. J. H. Moore. 



The Baptism in tfee Jordan, Dec. 6, 1889. 




1889 Dr. Talmage visited the Land 
of Palestine, and on Dec. 6, baptized 
Mr. Ulysses Grant Houston by trine 
immersion in the River Jordan. A 
full account of this may be found in Dr. 
Talmage's paper, The Christian Herald, of 
March 19, 1890, As copies of this issue 
cannot be had, we conclude to give the 
greater part of the article here for the satis- 
faction of our readers. In this manner it 
will also be preserved for future use. The 
account of the baptism we set up as found 
in Mr. Talmage's own paper. It reads as 
follows: 

"The baptism took place on Dec. 6, 1889, 
in the presence of two friends and traveling 
companions of Mr. Houston and of Dr. Tal- 
mage's party, with their dragoman, mule- 
teers, and an Arab sheik, who had been re- 
tained to protect the travelers on their 
journey. Such precautions are necessary 
now in the neighborhood of Jericho, as they 
were in the Savior's time, when ' a certain 
man going to Jericho fell among thieves.' 

THE JOURNEY 

"Commenced at Jericho. This is the 
third of the cities which have borne that 
name, and was the city of our Lord's time. 
The first of the three was that of Rahab, to 
which the spies went, and which was de- 
stroyed by Joshua. The second was built 
by Hiel, who paid the penalty pronounced 
by Joshua (Josh. 6: 26) against the man 
who should rebuild the city. His eldest 
son died when the foundations were laid, 
and his youngest son died when the gates 
were set up. There it was that Elisha 
" healed " the spring of water (2 Kings 2: 
18-21), and near there Zedekiah the king 
was defeated, and his eyes put out. 2 Kings 
25: 5. The third city was built under Herod 
the Great, and improved by Archelaus, who 
diverted a stream of water from Ncera to 
water the plain, and it became a city of 
palms. It was located about half an hour's

journey from the site of the earlier city. 
This Jericho still flourished in Christ's time, 
and there he wrought the cure of the blind 
man (Matt. 20: 30), and paid his memorable 
visit to Zaccheus. 

" From this place, so rich in sacred histor- 
ical associations, Dr. Talmage and his party 
set out, on horses, in a south-easterly 
direction for the north of the Dead Sea 
and the River Jordan. About half an hour's 
ride brought them to Riha, or the modern 
Jericho, a collection of houses built in mod- 
ern style, and boasting a hotel of some pre- 
tensions, whose chief support comes from 
foreign visitors to the Holy Land. As they 
passed the hotel, three travelers emerged 
from it, whose dress and manner suggested 
their being 

FELLOW-COUNTRYMEN. 

1 ■ The suspicion was confirmed when their 
leader greeted Dr. Talmage in' English. It 
appeared that he was a Bostonian, and he 
expressed the pleasure it would afford him 
and his companions, as they also were go- 
ing to the Dead Sea and the Jordan, to 
make the trip in company with the preach- 
er's party. The Bostonian frankly said that 
he had been concerned in the publication of 
a hostile criticism on Dr. Talmage's ser- 
mons, but he trusted that would not prevent 
their good-fellowship on such an excursion. 
In this view Dr. Talmage good-humoredly 



concurred, and the two parties rode on to- 
gether in company. In such a scene, and 
on a road so hallowed by the most wonder- 
ful and momentous events of Bible history, 
merely personal concerns were forgotten in 
the solemn 

ASSOCIATIONS OF THE LOCALITY. 

Surrounding them were the mountain- 
peaks on which Jacob must have looked 
when with his ' staff he crossed this Jor- 
dan,' and again when he returned, having 
1 become two bands.' Over that road the 
children of Israel must have passed when, 
having miraculously crossed the Jordan, 
they went toward Jericho to make their 
strange processions around its walls. That 
was the last earthly scene on which the eyes 
of Elijah rested when, over against Jericho, 
beyond Jordan, in a chariot of fire, with 
horses of fire, he 4 went up by a whirlwind 
into heaven.' And still more impressive 
was the thought that he who went about 
doing good had passed this way, had looked 
upon the same scene, and had worked mira- 
cles in those same surroundings. 

" Little remains now by that road to 
please the eye. Everything appeals to the 
imagination and the associations of the past. 
Ruins are every-where, and even the struct- 
ures which still stand, modern as they are, 
seem to have been built out of the ruins of 
more imposing edifices, degenerate descend- 
ants of far nobler predecessors. Only nat- 
ure is beautiful there, and she will put on a 
more intense loveliness still in that coming 
time when 'the mountains and the hills 
shall break forth into singing, and all the 
trees of the field shall clap their hands. In- 
stead of the thorn shall come up the fir-tree, 
and instead of the brier shall come up the 
myrtle-tree, and it shall be to the Lord for 
a name, for an everlasting sign that shall 
not be cut off.' 

" Conversation on the subject that was 
uppermost in all minds,— the past glory and 
present decadence of the country, — occupied 
the party as they rode through the scenes,

whose names and associations had been 
familiar to them from childhood. The re- 
marks of the new acquaintances proved that 
they were well read in Bible history, as well 
as generally intelligent. About an hour's 
ride brought the party to the shores of 

THE DEAD SEA, 

" About which so many strange stories 
have been related by travelers. It is an in- 
land sea about forty-six miles long, and ten 
wide at its greatest width. It receives tfte 
waters of the Jordan at its northern end, 
but has no known outlet. The tradition 
that its exhalations are so poisonous that 
birds flying over it are overcome and fall 
into it dead, proves incorrect, as the visitors 
saw several flocks of. them pass over it un- 
harmed. But no fish live in it, and on tast- 
ing the water, it was found to be much more 
saline than ordinary sea-water, and to have 
a peculiar taste, not unlike sulpliuric acid. 
Several members of the party laved their 
hands and faces with the water, and found 
that when dry a perceptible deposit of salt 
remained on the» skin. The region bears 
marks of natural convulsion, especially the 
deep ghor or chasm by which the Jordan 
flows into the sea. The whole aspect gives 
color to the belief that the sea owes its ex- 
istence to a sunken depression, and that its 
placid waters lie over the site of the cities 
of the plain which were destroyed because 
of the moral degradation of their inhabitants. 



It is still a gloomy, desolate scene, shunned 
by the* Arabs, and having no village or hu- 
man habitation on its borders. 




THE RIVER JORDAN, 

"To the Christian the most interesting 
stream in the whole world, was not far 
away, and the travelers, after spending half 
an hour on the shores of the Dead Sea, re- 
mounted their horses and rode thitherward. 
In about three-quarters of an hour their 
eyes were gladdened by a sight of the river. 
Not a great river, certainly. Its length 
from source to mouth is only 200 miles, and 
only 136 in a straight line. Its width varies 
from 45 to 180 feet, and its depth from 3 to 
12 feet. An insignificant river, truly, but 
how rich in associations! Its waters have 
been parted to let the great host pass 
through dry-shod. Joshua 3: 15, 17. They 
parted again when Elijah and Elisha passed 
through (2 Kings 2:8), and they gave the 
first proof that the spirit of Elijah had fall- 
en upon Elisha. It was in its despised 
waters that Naaman, the Syrian, dipped 
seven times, and was cleansed of his leprosy. 
2 Kings 5: 14. But still more precious are 
its New Testament associations. In one of 
its numerous, quiet eddies John baptized 
when ' all Jerusalem and all Judea went out 
to him and were baptized of him in Jordan, 
confessing their sins' (Matt. 3: 5, 6), and, — 
crowning glory of all, — in its waters the 
God-man himself was baptized, and as he 
came up those very banks, the heavens 
opened and the voice of God himself pro- 
claimed his Sonship. Matt. 3: 16, 17. It

was indeed a privilege to stand upon those 
banks, and one that was evidently appreciat- 
ed by every member of the party. 

" On the way Mr. Houston had fallen into 
conversation with a member of Dr. Tal- 
mage' s party, and had delicately broached a 
request which was evidently a matter of 
very strong desire on his part. He said 
that he had often heard Dr. Talmage preach, 
and had been much blessed under him. He 
would count it a high privilege to be bap- 
tized by him, and a still greater privilege, if 
the rite could take place in the Jordan. 
His desire was communicated to the Doctor, 
and he cheerfully consented. Three o'clock 
was the time set for the ceremony, and 
meantime the tents were pitched, and one 
of the servants who could swim tested the 
bottom of the river for a suitable place for 
the ceremony, as there are deep places at 
intervals near the banks, and an accident 
was possible. 

" It was a delightful day, and though the 
month was December, the temperature was 
that of a summer day. At the hour ap- 
pointed, Dr. Talmage emerged from his 
tent, clad in a long, brown robe, borrowed 
for the occasion from the sheik. It was not 
unclerical in shape, though somewhat short 
for the Doctor's tall form. The candidate 
for baptism had secured a long white robe 
from the Nubian attendant of his party, and 
thus clad, came to the bank where Dr. Tal- 



mage and the other members of the party 
waited. It was an interesting group, com- 
posed of the American ladies and gentle- 
men, the sheik, the muleteers and other 
attendants. 

THE SERVICE 

"Was opened by singing. No hymn- 
books were at hand, but the ladies had pro- 
vided for that deficiency while the tents 
were being pitched and the Doctor and Mr. 
Houston were robing themselves. They 
had written out from memory the stanzas, 
so appropriate to the occasion and the 
scene, which now rose in cadence on the 
river bank: 

" On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, 
And cast a wishful eye 
To Canaan's fair and happy land, 
Where my possessions lie. 

"O the transporting, rapturous scene 
That rises to my sight; 
Sweet fields arrayed in living green, 
And rivers of delight! 

" When shall I reach that happy place, 
And be forever blest? 
When shall I see my Father's face, 
And in His bosom rest? 

" It was a solemn scene; even the sheik 
was affected by it. To the surprise of the 
Americans he ^prostrated himself on the 
earth and prayed to Allah, as if the spirit of 
worship could not be resisted. As the sing- 
ing ceased, he rose and closely watched the 
ceremony. Dr. Talmage then led in prayer, 
invoking the £)ivine presence and blessing. 
Opening his Bible, he then read from the 
third chapter of Matthew the account of 
the baptism of Jesus. The customary ques- 
tions to the candidate were asked, and satis- 
factory answers were given. Dr. Talmage 
then'^read his commission in Matt. 28: 19, 20, 
' Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Father, 
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,' etc. 
Looking the candidate squarely in the face, 
Dr. Talmage said: ' In this historic river, 
which parted three times to let God's peo- 
ple pass dry-shod, in which Naaman plunged

seven times for healing from dire disease, 
and from the banks of which Elijah ascend- 
ed in equipage of fire, and in which Christ 
was baptized, and which for ages has been 
the symbol of the division between earth 
and heaven, I baptize thee.' Then, taking 
the candidate by the hand, he led him into 
the water. Reaching the sufficient depth 
he immersed him three separate times, re- 
peating the usual formula: ' In the name of 
the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
Ghost,' after which he pronounced the ben- 
ediction. At the close of the ceremony Dr. 
Talmage said: 'As the ordinance was ob- 
served under the direction of no particular 
denomination of Christians, and no particu- 
lar church could be responsible for it, I feel 
it my duty to report what I did to the 
church universal.' " 

REMARKS. 

In describing this baptism, in some of his 
books, Mr. Talmage has seen proper to 
omit the trine immersion part. For what 
reason, has never been explained, but that 
he baptized Mr. Houston by trine immersion, 
is here proven beyond a question.

(From the Gospel Messenger.) 

UR wanderings have brought us to a 
secluded little German village, far 
away from the rush and bustle of 
the busy world of travel. It is one of those 
quaint, old-fashioned towns that seem quite 
out of place in the present. It belongs to 
the past and has not yet awakened to the 
impulse of the age, which has taken hold 
upon many parts of Germany. Its peace 
and quiet has never been disturbed by the 
sound of locomotive or cars. For more 
than three centuries it has nestled in the 
beautiful valley through which, like a thread 
of silver in a ribbon of green, flows the his- 
toric river Eder. 

As we write, we are seated on the ap- 
proach to the foot-bridge, used by the vil- 
lagers to cross over the stream. On either 
side of the river stand the quaint-looking 
old houses with high gables and steep roofs, 
covered with straw or red tile, which form 
the ancient village of Schwarzenau. The 
village children, in peculiar dress, stand at 
a respectful distance, watching, with open- 
eyed wonder, the strangers who have invad- 
ed their quiet little town. Even the elderly 
people stop and give us a look of surprised 
inquiry, and collect in groups to discuss the 
strange sight of a drosky with travelers in 
their streets. As they pass by they greet 
us cordially with a " Guten Tag" ("Good 
Day"). Wife walks along the meandering 
stream, the water of which is as clear as 
crystal, and the gently-sloping banks are 
covered with grass to the very edge of the 
river. A well-kept lawn is not more evenly 
mowed than the grassy slopes of the Eder. 
It is a quiet October day, a day that recalls 
our own delightful Indian summer weather 
at home. The mountains on either side of 
the valley are covered with a thick growth 
of pine, birch, maple, and beech. The 
touch of autumn frost has tinged the foliage 
with a rich coloring of crimson, red and

Brethren 's Family Almanac. 23 

There are some places on the blue Juniata 
above and below Huntingdon, Pa., that are 
recalled as we sit here, but the similarity is 
scarcely sufficient to base a comparison 
upon. The Juniata has a grand, rugged, 
dashing beauty peculiar to itself; here the 
sharp curves, the rushing river, the rocky 
shores, and the steep mountains are re- 
placed by a gently-flowing stream through 
a valley of green meadow land, formed by 
mountains of even slope and less than half 
the altitude of the Blue Ridge and Allegha- 
nies. Here is a quiet, enchanting beauty 
which, we are quite willing to confess, ex- 
ceeds anything we can now recall of ever 




THE BRIDGE AT SCHWARZENAU, GERMANY. 



gold. Up the stream, a hundred yards 
away, is the old, five-arched stone bridge, 
built centuries ago, and beyond this a beau- 
tiful stretch of green meadow land. Sitting 
here on the old foot-bridge, with the valley 
for a mile above and below Schwarzenau in 
full view, we have no picture in mind 
beautiful as this. 



so 



having seen even in picturesque America. 
Perhaps the associations connected with the 
place may have their influence upon our 
estimate of its surpassing beauty; but after 
making due allowance for all this, we are 
not willing to say less than we have. 

And what are the associations connected 
with this quiet, old-fashioned' German ham-

let? Most of our readers already know and 
others, no doubt, will be interested in know- 
ing that here at Schwarzenau, nearly two 
hundred years ago, the dying embers of 
primitive Christianity were rekindled and 
the Brethren's church was more fully organ- 
ized. Here, on the banks of this beautiful 
stream, doubtless not far from where we 
write, the Brethren assembled in the year 
1708, and, following the example of Christ, 
as one of our learned divines of America re- 
cently followed it in the river Jordan, they 
went down into the water and were baptized 
" into the name of the Father, and into the 
name of the Son, and into the name of the 
Holy Ghost," and from here went forth that 
little band of persecuted believers, exiled 
from their " Vaterland" (" Fatherland ") to 
find a home in the Quaker Colony of Penn- 
sylvania. 

Under the mild rule of the good Count 
Cassimir, of Wittgenstein, who gave an asy- 
lum to the persecuted Pietists, the newly 
re-organized church flourished for a season, 
and prosperous congregations were soon es- 
tablished at different places, especially at 
Marienborn and Berleburg. But they were 
not to live in peace. The reformers, who 
had been persecuted by Rome, now turned 
persecutors themselves and they laid a 
heavy hand on the Brethren. Refusing to 
give up their faith in Apostolic Christianity, 
many of them were cast into prison and 
heavy fines were imposed upon all " of this 



way." Hochmann, a prominent minister, 
was cast into prison and beaten with many 
stripes. Alexander Mack, one of their most 
prominent ministers, had inherited a con- 
siderable fortune. It was all used in paying 
fines for himself and his poorer brethren. 
At length the persecution became so griev- 
ous that a number of them left their homes 
to settle in the wilderness of the then New 
World. Others fled to Switzerland, hoping 
to secure religious liberty in that republic, 
but a worse fate awaited them there. They 
were imprisoned and some were put to 
death. By these rigorous measures the 
State Church succeeded in its purpose, and 
no vestige of the church of the Brethren is 
to be found in those valleys to-day. 

We have been brought into close contact 
with the homes of our Brethren in Germany. 
We have seen where they lived and labored 
and we are much impressed with the 
thought of the great sacrifice they made 
when they left these beautiful and fertile 
valleys for the wilds of the New World. 
We are made to admire, more and more, 
their courage and the spirit of self-sacrifice 
which led them to abandon home and the 
associations of a life-time for the sake of 
primitive Christianity. How they must 
have suffered and what hardships they must 
have endured, all for the sake of religious 
liberty! How often, from their lonely 
homes on Indian Creek and the Wissa- 
chickon, at White Oak, at Ephrata, and at 
Germantown, surrounded by the Red Man 
of the forest, must they have looked back 
with longing, yearning hearts to this beauti- 
ful valley of the Eder, once their quiet; 
peaceful, happy home, from which they 
were exiled, never to return again. 

How often must they have battled with 
the homesick feeling that will come to all 
who love home and leave it. How often in 
their dreams their feet pressed again the 
grassy slopes of the Eder, they drank again 
of its crystal water and breathed again the 
pure mountain air, and were happy again in 
their old homes, only to awake and find it

all a dream. We have thought more of all 
this, perhaps, because we are far away from 
home and friends and know something of 
the desire to return again. These brave 
men and women endured much so that they 
might serve the Lord in his own appointed 
way. Long ago they were gathered to that 
home where the weary are at rest and from 
which they will never be exiled. The cause 
they loved so well; and for which they sac- 
rificed so much, still lives. And shall it not 
continue to live? Shall not we, who to-day 
stand in the places of those who have gone 
before, hold up the cause of Apostolic Chris- 
tianity? Shall we not be true to the cause 
we have espoused and for which our fathers 
suffered so much, yea, for which Christ 
died? God help us to be faithful even unto 
death. 

What a place this /is to write, ^and how the 
mind runs on, spurred by the inspiration of 
the theme and the surroundings, but we 
must put a curb on these reflections and say 
something more about Schwarzenau. The 
village is built on either side of the Eder 
and contains, as were informed by one of 
the inhabitants, about 600 souls. On the 
outer walls of one of the principal houses 
hangs a square sign-board, on the white sur- 
face of which is painted in large black let- 
ters the following official record of the 
place: 



D. Schwarzenau. (Village of Schwarzenau.) 
Ami Arfeld. (District of Arfeld.) 
Kr. Wittgenstein. (Circuit of Wittgenstein.) 
Rg. Bz. Arnsberg. (Government Division of 

Arnsberg.) 
Landwehr- Battalions. (Military Battalions.) 
' Bezirk Meschede. (Division of Meschede.) 

The people of the village are engaged in 
farming and appear to be well-to-do and 
happy. Their piety asserts itself in the cus- 
tom of engraving passages of Scriptures on 
the oak sills and panels in the sides and ga- 
bles of their houses. Not only at Schwar- 
zenau, but at other villages in the valley of 
the Eder, we noticed not only Scriptural pas 
sages but short poems and various pious 
mottoes on the houses. The following are 
given as examples. We copied them ver- 
batim: 

" Gottsegne dieses Haus 
Und einen j eden Stand, 
Den Burger in der Stadt, 
Den Bauer auf dem Land, 
Gib Segen und Gedeihen 
Auch fur ein jedes We sen, 
Besonders noch fur den 
Der diesen Sprue h thut lesen." 

Translated this reads: 

"God bless this house, 
And each and every occupation, 
The citizen of the town, 
The farmer on the field, 
Give blessings and prosperity 
Also to each being, 
Especially to him 
Who may read this inscription." ■ 

As we stood copying these lines, the own- 
er of the house came out and informed us 
that he had placed them there with his own 
hand. He read them over several times 
and seemed to be much pleased that his 
work was thus noticed. We wish he could 
read this letter in the Messenger. At an- 
other place we read, "Dieses Hans gehort 
Gott und mir! y Here the owner takes the 
Lord into partnership with him. A lesson 
may be learned from this simple villager. 
We have too much of the " I own this prop- 
erty" and not enough of the " It belongs to 
the Lord " in our way of looking at what

God has made us stewards over. One more 
example will suffice: " Ich getran Gott in oi- 
ler Noth" (I trust God in all distress.) 
Much of the carving is very skillfully done, 
the old German letters being used and the 
capitals finely decorated. 

Not far from Schwarzenau is the town of 
Berleburg. This was a noted center for our 
Brethren and other so-called Pietists. They 
came here from many parts of Germany. 
Among others who came was a printer from 
Strassburg named John Jacob Hang. He 
had been awakened and came to Berleburg 
to enjoy the society of kindred spirits. A 
printing-press was set up, for these early 
brethren believed in the use of printer's ink, 
and Hang took charge of the office.* Here 
in 1726 the celebrated Berleburg Bible, with 
notes, was published in three volumes. A 
copy of this Bible may be seen in the Cas- 
sel Library at Mt. Morris, 111. The print- 
ing-press was afterward sent to America 
where, in 1736, it came into the possession 
of Eld. Christopher Saur and he used it to 
print the first religious paper and the first 
Bible (1743) that was printed in America. 

Eld. Christopher Saur, the printer, was a 
man of more than ordinary ability. He re- 
ceived a liberal education at the University 
of Marburg, Germany. He united with the 
Brethren and used his ability and education 
to further the cause of Christ. He had en- 
ergy and business push. He gave the Ger- 
man colonists their first almanac and their 
first religious paper, and then, owing to the 
fact that Bibles were very scarce in the New 
Colony, he determined to give to his coun- 
trymen the Scriptures in their own tongue. 
He began the work under great difficulties. 
A friend in Frankfort, Germany, sent him a 
part of the type. A few pages were set up 
and printed and then the type distributed, 
to be set up again. At last, in 1743, he sent 
out the first edition of the first Bible ever 
published in a European language in Amer- 
ica. The credit of this important work thus 



*We are especially indebted to Bro. A. H. Cassel 
of Harleysville, Pa., for this historical fact. 



belongs to the band of exiled Brethren. 
The book, a large quarto, was bound in 
boards and leather, and of such excellent 
workmanship was the binding that many 
well-preserved copies are yet to be found. 
The demand for the Bible made it necessary 
to issue two more editions, one in 1763 and 
the last in 1776. Bro. A. H. Cassel has a 
full set of these Bibles and we are also fort- 
unate enough to possess a copy of each of 
the three editions in an excellent state of 
preservation. 

If any of our readers should have an op- 
portunity to visit the valley of the Eder and 
the village of Schwarzenau, they may not 
be able to locate the place on the maps, as 
the smaller villages are not given. We 
traveled southward through Cassel to the 
university town of Marburg, and here we se- 
cured a carriage and driver. The distance 
from Marburg to Schwarzenau is not far 
from twenty miles, and the entire trip is a 
pleasant one. D. L. Miller. 




SE only the best of ripe grapes. 
Press out the juice in any manner 
desired, and strain thoroughly. The 
oftener it is strained the better. Then heat, 
and can in glass jars, the same as fruit. Al- 
so care for it the same as canned fruit. 
Grape juice, put up in this manner, will keep 
in an unfermented state for years. It is the 
wine, recommended for Communion purpos- 
es. Diluted with a little water, it makes a 
very healthy and harmless drink. 



A man is in little danger of eating too 
much, if he will confine himself to two or 
three plain articles of diet at any one meal; 
this is a secret which every man and woman 
in the land ought to know. Living exclu- 
sively on cold food will soon engender dis- 
ease, especially in cold weather. And as 
certainly will a scant diet do the same, if 
persevered in.

The Gospel Messenger, 



A religious weekly, published at $1.50 per annum, is the rec- 
ognized organ of the German Baptist or Brethren church, and 
advocates the form of doctrine taught in the New Testament and 
pleads for a return to apostolic and primitive Christianity. It is 
a vindicator of all that Christ and the apostles have enjoined up- 
on us, and aims, amid the conflicting theories and discords of 
modern Christendom, to point out ground that all must concede 
to be infallibly safe. Brethren's Publishing Co., 

Mt. Morris, 111., or Huntingdon, Pa.
